NEW!

Clipper delivers fast and selective control of tough invasive and nuisance plants such as cabomba, watermeal, Eurasian watermilfoil, water lettuce, duckweed, giant salvinia and more. Plus, Clipper dissipates quickly from the water column and does not accumulate in sediment. And, Clipper offers reduced PPE requirements 51% WDG formulation for easier application and handling.

How It Works

Valent® Clipper™ Aquatic Herbicide is formed into quick-dissolve granules that mix effortlessly in water eliminating messy and difficult applications. It is a broad spectrum, contact herbicide containing the active ingredient Flumioxazin.

Flumioxazin should be applied to actively growing plants and a surfactant will be needed if the herbicide is applied foliage of floating or emergent plants. Water pH needs to be below 8.5* or flumioxazin will rapidly degrade and lose effectiveness.

*If pH is above 8.5, adding muriatic acid to your mix tank will lower pH below the desired range. The pH of the mix MUST be within 5-7 on the day of application for this product to effective. Purchasing a fish aquarium pH test kit (roughly $10) will allow you to test your spray solution before application. Water chemistry is variable and changes depending on the water temperature, rain, wind, and biotic processes, so pH testing must be done before each application. Be careful while handling (muriatic acid is a strong acid).

Application

Clipper™ Aquatic Herbicide by Valent® is available in a 5 pound container that is capable of treating ponds up to 5 acres when used in surface applications. Valent® Clipper™ can be mixed with water and applied using a chemical sprayer.

It is extremely important to distribute this product evenly. Clipper may be applied as either a subsurface application for submerged vegetation such as milfoil or as a surface application for duckweed or watermeal.

Clipper Example: Rate examples below are average label doses.

Subsurface Application:
  • Sample at 200 ppb: 105' x 105' Pond (.25) Acre 4 ft avg depth. Calculated as 0.25 acres x 4.2 lbs. = 1.05 lbs.- Amount required: 1.05 Pounds
  • Sample at 200ppb: 208' x 208' Pond (1.0) Acre 4 ft avg depth. Calculated as 1 acre x 4.2 lbs = 4.2 lbs. - Amount required: 4.20 Pounds
Foliar (Surface) Application:

Surface applications are not dependent on depth. 6-12 ounces of clipper should be applied per acre for foliar (surface) applications.

  • Sample 105' x 105' Pond (.25). Example calculated: 105' x 105' = 0.25 acres. 0.25 acres x 6 ounces = 1.5 ounces (low dose) or 0.25 x 12 ounces = 3 ounces (high dose) - Amount required: 1.5-3 Ounces
  • Sample 208' x 208' Pond (1.0) Acre - Amount required: 6-12 Ounces (can be calculated the same as above).

For Best Results

Use of a non-ionic surfactant such as Cygnet Plus is highly recommended. Begin Clipper application as early in the morning as possible on a calm, sunny day.

Begin application in spring as water temperature warms to 60º F and above. Early treatment when growth first appears or begins to create a nuisance will reduce the amount of CLIPPER needed. Early treatment will also reduce the amount of dead growth.

Heavy, out of control growth may require more than one application or physical removal to gain control. Apply early on the morning of a calm, sunny day. Several hours of contact time is needed.

Notices

*All pesticides can be harmful to health and the environment if misused. Read the label and follow directions. Consult with your local regulatory agency before applying herbicides and algaecides to public waters. There are herbicides from other states that are either not licensed in Wisconsin or Illinois, or are not recommended by ABI.

A WI DNR Aquatic Plant Control Permit or DATCP Fish Farm License is required in WI in order to apply algaecides or herbicides. In addition ponds and lakes with overflows not contained on the property are required to obtain a WPDES permit. Illinois Residents are required to obtiain NPDES permits through the Illinois EPA.

In order to apply chemicals in liquid form within Wisconsin, the applicator must be licensed with the State.

Recommendations of pesticide or treatments for specific algae or aquatic plants are provided for general information purposes only - no warranties are expressed or implied.
